DJI, known for its drones, has expanded into the portable power station market with the release of the DJI Power 1000 and Power 500 models on 18th April 2024. These power solutions for both fieldwork and recreational use. Let’s look at the features, specifications, and what you can expect from these units – with a side-by-side comparison.

Key Features of DJI Power Stations

• Model Variants: Two sizes available; DJI Power 1000 with 1024 Wh capacity and DJI Power 500 with 512 Wh capacity.

• Rapid Charging: Both models can be fully charged in 70 minutes, with an option to charge up to 80% in just 50 minutes.

• Versatile Charging Options: Includes AC outlets, USB-C ports, and options for solar and car charging.

• Intelligent Battery Management: Equipped with LFP cells, these power stations promise up to 3,000 charge cycles and a 10-year lifespan.

• Safety Certifications: Achieved 26 product test certifications, ensuring reliability and safety.

• Ultra-Portable Design: DJI Power 1000 weighs 13kg and the Power 500 weighs 7.3kg, both designed for easy transport.

• Extensive Device Compatibility: Capable of powering devices from smartphones and laptops to more intensive appliances like microwave ovens and refrigerators.

Speed and Efficiency in Charging

One of the standout features of the DJI Power stations is their ability to charge quickly. This is particularly beneficial for professionals and adventurers who cannot afford long downtimes. For perspective, you just need around 32 minutes to charge a Mavic 3 series drone battery from 10% to 95% with its fast charge cable. For the DJI Air 3, this will just be 30 minutes.

Whether you're a content creator needing to charge camera batteries or a camper looking to power a portable fridge, the quick charge capability ensures you spend more time using your devices and less time waiting on power replenishment. 

For instance, the Power 1000 can recharge a mobile phone approximately 57 times and a digital camera about 59 times, making it a reliable companion for extended trips and photography sessions. It can also keep a Wi-Fi router running for nearly 77 hours, ensuring connectivity even in remote locations. For more substantial needs, it can power a microwave oven for about 1.3 hours and a car refrigerator for 19 hours, a big win for those on road trips and outdoor events. 

Additionally, it can support a drone for up to 12 sessions, crucial for aerial videographers. The smaller Power 500, while providing less capacity, still manages respectable figures, such as recharging a phone around 28 times or running a camping light for 16 cycles, ensuring that essential devices remain operational throughout your adventure or in case of power outages at home.

Flexible Power Options

The flexibility in charging these power stations — via solar panels, car chargers, or traditional power sockets — addresses the needs of a wide range of users. For those on the road or in remote locations, solar panels offer a sustainable and convenient method to recharge the power station without reliance on grid electricity.

Portability and Design

The design considerations of the DJI Power 1000 and 500 reflect DJI's understanding of users' needs for mobility and ease of use. The compact and relatively lightweight design makes these power stations ideal for outdoor activities, emergency home backup, and professional use on-site where power supply is a constraint.

Safety and Durability

DJI has not compromised on safety and durability in the design and engineering of its Power 1000 and Power 500 power stations. It has integrated advanced features like an Intelligent Battery Management System with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cells that offer up to 3,000 charge cycles plus the 10-year lifespan. The devices have earned 26 product test certifications from the respected Swiss authority SGS, ensuring compliance with stringent safety standards. Additionally, each unit comes with a three-year warranty that can be extended by two years, providing further assurance of their reliability and safety for long-term use.
